Title: Design of a Cyber-Physical System for flexible Human Robot Collaboration Abstract: In the current research a reference design for a human-robot collaborative Cyber-Physical System was defined. The design is crucial for bridging the gap between chain production to lean production in the nowadays fastmoving market. Hence, concepts of Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical Systems, Human Robot Collaboration and flexibility were applied. The envisaged system foresaw a direct collaboration between robot and human therefore, Human Centred Design methods were exploited for improving the collaboration in the human-robot team. The research process started with an investigation of the actual state of the art behind the topic for bridging possible gaps. Then, those gaps were leveraged and a concept for the design was defined. The concept foresaw the usage of ArUco markers for defining the relative position of the robot to the workspace. And the usage of SUS and NASA TLX for assessing the usability of the system. Following, the concept was implemented taking in consideration the requirements expressed by the research group. At the end, the system was evaluated in its main design components. It was found that the precision of the system was sub-millimetric in regions nearby the ArUco marker. And that a properly designed interface was able to decrease the amount of workload from 16 to 9 with a likeness ratio of 1.33. Given the achieved results the system constitutes an ideal candidate for implementing flexibility with human-robot collaboration.
